Nita is just starting to become comfortable with her wizardly abilities. She and her best friend Kit work carefully around their community, getting the feel for being wizards.

But Nita's canny little sister Dairine can't leave the idea of wizardry alone. Now that she knows her sister's secret, Dairine wants the power herself. Smart, abrasive, tough, and with big dreams of adventure, Dairine sneaks into Nita's room one night and reads the Oath. The next day, via the women's restroom at the space museum...she finds herself on Mars.

Whisked away on an Ordeal that is possibly even more dangerous and pivotal than Nita and Kit's, Dairine will set in motion an intergalatic race between the forces of darkness and the wizards of Earth hot on her tail; namely Nita, Kit, and a mouthy macaw named Peach.

With only an unusually sentient computer manual and her own brains and bravery to aid her, this is where Dairine steps up to take her rightful place as a wonderful, naive, brilliant character in this amazing series. ( )

I might have liked this one the best so far. Definitely the most science-fiction seeming of the series (which is definitely, solidly, in the YA fantasy category), in this book Nita and Kit have to chase after Nita’s younger sister through the galaxy and into another one. ( )

It could be better, it could be worse

I didn't like the first book much, the second was way better and now this was bad again. Would that be a patron? ( )

I enjoyed this addition to the Young Wizards series. This book spends a significant amount of time with Nita's sister, Dairine, and the new perspective as well as the new aspects of wizardry that the book portrays were definitely fresh and fun to read. There were a few things that felt a little questionable (like how an elementary school student who was never allowed to even skip grades could understand and program living things via a computer) but I did like the more science-fiction settings of this one and the story-telling possibilities unlocked in the exploration of the universe left me wanting more.

Wow. Easily my favourite book of the series so far.

We get: character development for everybody (except maybe the advisory wizards, they got theirs last time). Dairine is obviously front and center for this, but Kit and Nita get to explore their feelings for each other, and Nita's parents get to deal with computers and even more wizardry.

I really wonder how I would have reacted to this book as a child. Would it have been to complex or abstract? By now, I just love it. I love the inclusion of computers in a book from 1990, I love how it reminds me of Stross (computers can work magic), and HPMOR (magic has a system that gets more clear as the books carry on). I love how we deal with the implications of creating a true AI in a book from 1990. For children. This book went in a different direction than I thought and wasn't just a copy of the first two books, including Dairine as protagonist. It explores a different theme entirely, and does it well. Will re-read, and it easily deserved my five stars. ( )

I'd like to get away from Earth awhile
And then come back to it and begin over.
May no fate willfully misunderstand me
And half grant what I wish and snatch me away
Not to return. Earth's the right place for love:
I don't know where it's likely to go better.
(Robert Frost, "Birches")
Where, except in the present, can the Eternal be met?
